Blog Hop IMAGINE Crafts and MAGENTA!

 Welcome to a week of fantastic collaboration between IMAGINE Crafts and Magenta Rubber Stamps! Both companies are excited to share with you their products, from the latest inks from IMAGINE Crafts to the newest Fall and Holiday stamp releases from Magenta.    

    I've used the Walnut ink sprays to create the background and colour the stamped images. 
The how-to:
Spray the inks on your craftsheet, swipe you cardstock through it, and see the magic that has happened! Leave to dry. Stamp the images with StazOn on a different piece of cardstock, cut it out. Color it with the same colors as you've used to make the background. Add some goosebumps to the wings to give it some gloss! Do some script stamping with StazOn in the background. Adhere the stamped images to the background. Draw a doodle line around the edge.

I also created this ATC, the same techniques:
